The Wilkes Soil & Water Conservation District now has a Truax FlexII-88 and a Haybuster 77c no-till drill! These drills have three seed boxes to allow planting of cool season grasses and small grains, fluffier seed such as warm season grasses, or even smaller seed such as legumes (works great with clover).
The Truax FlexII-88 has a seeding width of 5.3 feet and can be pulled with a 40hp tractor, so it is ideal for those smaller areas! The Haybuster 77c has a seeding width of 7 feet and and only need a 35hp tractor, which is great for your larger areas! Both of these no-till drills are a great tool for managing forages such as fescue, orchardgrasses, and grass-clover mixes.
Spring is a good time to seed for vigor and stand improvement. The drill provides a means for better seeding precision, and reduces volume of seed needed.
The drills are available for rent at a rate of $10 per acre, with a $75 minimum.
